75cl * 13.0% ABV * Burgundy, France
The Nuits-Saint-George is the most southerly appellation of the Cote de Nuits producing wines rich in tannin, giving them strength, depth and longevity. Poised berry - cherry, strawberry and blackcurrant - fruit combines with spiced liquorice and rose petals. On the muscular side for Burgundy, this shows a chewy and medium-to-full palate with a powerful finish. With time, mature notes of leather, truffle and game will develop, making this an excellent partner to feathered game and mushroom dishes or soft-centred cheeses.
